High blood pressure is not painful and often people do not know for a very long time they already suffer from it. This is a problem because sometimes the hidden danger is more dangerous than the obvious one.
To have up to 140/90 mmHg is considered to be normal. If you have higher blood pressure than this you suffer in fact from an illness which is called hypertension. There are two types of this disease. The primary hypertension is the one when the high blood pressure is not caused by any other disease. This type is also the most common one. By the secondary hypertension is the high blood pressure caused by another illness (for example various kidney diseases or diseases of the thyroid can be the cause of high blood pressure). Only 10-15 % of people who have high blood pressure have the secondary type of the disease.
